International Sushi Day is approaching and you have the opportunity to celebrate this day at home with unique sushi presentation, which is all about sophisticated minimalism. Traditionally, sushi is served on a square sushi tray and the cleaner the design, the better, with darker colours being the typical choice, as the sushi dish is supposed to let the beauty of the sushi bites stand out. Sushi chefs believe that balance is achieved both in taste as well as in the presentation of the dish.
It’s Magic in the Making!
Our tableware designer Anna has always had this Balance worked out. A balance between Beautiful Imperfection and Effortless Beauty. “Beautiful imperfection” is relevant to the Japanese concept of “Wabi Sabi”, which has influenced Anna’s design approach since the first time she went to Japan in 2001. It’s a concept that exemplifies the impermanent, the incomplete and the transience of things. This beautiful idea is incorporated in her collection and everything she does. Each product is made from the heart and does not try strive for absolute perfection, which is often cold and even boring. Slight variations in texture, soft curves and rounded edges all follow the Wabi Sabi ideal. At the same time, it’s exactly these small imperfections that bring out the beauty of each piece and give her creations the effortless charm of natural forms.
